U had a dummy which she barely used up until June. After that she became very dependent upon her dummy and a blanket which she carried everywhere. I have been encouraging her to not use either as much and at nursery she very rarely has either now. We talked about it a couple of months ago and said shall we give the dummies to the Chrsitmas fairy? U was very up for it and excited about it. B was very encouraging as well telling her about the presents he got in exchange for his. However in the last couple of weeks she has become very dependent upon her dummy again. So I am now not sure whther to encourage her to dump them or not? I don't really want her to have them anymore and had planned to give them away to the summer holiday fairies but again didn't want to take her comfort away from her.

I would wait to get Christmas out of the way and then try the dummy fairies. That way she can be excited about that alone rather than all the excitement of Christmas. You might really need her to have the dummy if she becomes overtired on Christmas Day.. My 2 were really dependent on dummies after illness but it was surpringly easy to lose the dummy. The first night without the dummy was a little hard but it was so easy after the.

Christmas Day is just the three of us so no worries there about her getting over tired - if she does we'll just go for a cuddle and a nap together. I've bought her a pack of dollies in exchange for the dummies... maybe leave it until January then?

I decided against xmas to give things up as I wanted the excitement to be just about the day (incase giving up something backfired really!). In this house fairies work all year round for all sorts of purposes! Dummies, bottles, good behaviour and one day, teeth!

Oooo like the sound of house fairies.

You have my sympathy. O has become really dependant on the bloody things in the past few weeks. I will have to tackle it at some point during the new year.
